The hinges may need to be replaced, it's covered under warranty assuming you still have it. Read this thread for others with the same problem: Screen Joint Pops/Squeaks

Yep, propular problem and it only gets worse. The ol' Applecare or warranty ought to see it right.

And yes, no offense to whoever designed them but the smileys on the board are bloody ugly

That is AppleCare, just not the extended 3-year AppleCare plan which you can buy (within the first year of ownership).

and yeah, I hate this forum's smileys too, UGLY!

LOL - I miss the old ones. It was much easier to tell what the person was trying to express with those faces. These new ones are certainly creative and artistic, but not very good at showing emotions. Alas, I don't think the originals are coming back anytime soon.
